Zmanda Windows Client

The Zmanda Windows Client (hereafter known as ZWC) shares code with our parent company Carbonite’s full featured program Carbonite Server Backup. For this reason sometimes “ZWC Service” or “ZWC-Database” are sometimes listed as “Carbonite Server Backup Controller” and “Carbonite Server Database” respectively. Treat these Carbonite services exactly as you would the ZWC services in these instructions.

If an attempt to uninstall the ZWC has already been made, and it failed, please proceed to “The ZWC Installation Cleanup Tool” section below.

Otherwise, follow these steps to uninstall ZWC:

  1. Open the Add/Remove Programs section of the Windows Control Panel.
  2. Locate the Zmanda Client for Windows(x64).
  3. Choose “Uninstall”.

Once the previous version has been uninstalled, you may install ZWC.

If uninstallation fails, or if you continue to receive the conflicting Zmanda product error, please manually uninstall using the ZWC Cleanup Tool as described below.

  1. Locate the folder where you installed ZWC and delete any remaining program files and folders.
    1. If you have local backups, please copy this folder to another location before deletion.
  2. If you are using Windows Vista/Server 2008 or later, also delete all files and folders in C:\ProgramData\Zmanda\Zmanda Client for Windows(x64)\.
  3. Verify if any of the ZWC services are listed in the Windows Services Panel.
  4. Stop any of those services that are running.
    1. If more than one is listed, ZWC-Database should be stopped last.
  5. Run the ZWCInstallCleanup tool from an elevated command prompt.
    1. ZWCInstallCleanUp.exe for 32-bit machines
    2. ZWCInstallCleanUp-64.exe for 64-bit machines
  6. Refresh the Services list.
    1. If all of the leftover services are gone, retry your installation.
    2. If any services remain, continue to the next step.
  7. If one or more Services are still present, you must delete the service manually from an elevated command prompt with the command: sc delete name_of_service.
    1. Remove any spaces from the service name when using the sc delete command.
    2. EXAMPLE: sc delete ZWCService
  8. There will be one of three responses to the sc delete command.
    1. ACCESS DENIED: The command was not run from an elevated command prompt. The sc delete command must be run from an elevated command prompt. Please try again.
    2. SUCCESS: Refresh the Services list. If the deleted service is still present, a reboot of the system is required to complete the removal of the service.
    3. THE SERVICE HAS BEEN MARKED FOR DELETION: A reboot of the system is required to complete the removal of the service.
  9. Once all left over services have been removed, please retry your installation.
  10. If it still fails, open an elevated command prompt.
  11. Run the ZWCInstallCleanUp tool that corresponds to the previous ZWC installation from an elevated command prompt, and add the -D argument to the end.
    1. ZWCInstallCleanup.exe -D
    2. The -D argument causes the Cleanup tool to remove everything associated with ZWC, including all files, registry entries, services, and the amandabackup user. Backups on the local disk will be deleted also if they are in the default directo
